"Who eats well, lives well." It's an old Italian proverb. But it still holds as true today, as it did one thousand years ago.
I have said it before, and I will say it again, I'm not the "tree-hugging" type of person who drives a Prius, uses the canvas grocery bags (though I should), and only eats salads. I do believe in picking up after yourself, not littering, and just being smart about the environment in general. But I am still in all honesty going to eat steaks, drive my truck, and slide surf machines of the foam orientation...
But back on track, the other day a good friend of mine was kind enough to send me over a box of Pure food bars. They are entirely organic (USDA and Vegan approved) and are actually not bad tasting. In fact, the Apple Cinnamon bar is fantastic. Throw one in the fridge the night before your dawn patrol and then munch on that that while checking the swell is ideal. I only wish that I had more.
If you are on the left coast, they are found at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and other big name retailers. If you are like me and on the right side of the country, we have the Food Lion. But you can also purchase them on their website, The Pure Bar or Amazon. They are dairy free, soy free, and gluten free. Read their story on their website, it is very interesting
Check them out, and more importantly, mangia bene!
